Late season land trapping

Hern mentioned in a previous post about using double long springs as being old school. I have some that are fully modified that get used strictly for late season trapping and they work great. The benefits are numerous and I love having them set up with PIT pans.

Any one else taking advantage of these relics during the season?

Re: Late season land trapping

I have no luck with the rocky terrain here in pike county , but I do love the sleepy creek #4 for beaver , excellent for bedding when I'm forced to go for the hind foot .

Re: Late season land trapping

maybe a tad off topic but i caught my first coon (over 20lbs boar) in a 1 single long spring we found in my grandfathers garage. im assuming it was meant for muskrat but hey it held him XD. no tellin how long that trap sat in that shed.
